      Not all books suffer the dreaded second book curse. Most of the time, especially in YA series/trilogies, the second book will always be the most dreaded one. Shusterman managed to create a terrific novel. A great successor to Everlost.The novel continues with three different voices. We have Mary, Allie, and Nick. Naturally we tend to have favorites when it comes to novels with different voices, and I also have my own in this novel. I liked Allie's adventure more because I'm really interested wit [...]

      Ohhh my gosh. I don't even know where to begin! Neal Shusterman is basically an amazing genius. I'm surprised he's not more famous. I've seen more people reading Unwind recently, which is good. I hope more people keep reading his books, because they are AWESOME! Unwind is definitely his best, and I don't know if he can ever write anything as shocking and powerful, but Everwild is the closest he's gotten so far.But before I get to my review of Everwild specifically, I just want to point out the r [...]

      The second of a planned trilogy, EVERWILD picks up a unspecified (but probably short) time after Everlost ends. And wowI thought EVERLOST was good, but EVERLOST blows it out of the water in every way, shape, and form possible A sequel that was better than the first!EVERWILD continues the story of Allie and Nick, but their stories diverge as they pursue separate goals; Allie sets off with Mikey to find her parents in hopes that she might put her spirit to rest, while Nick finds himself against Ma [...]

      This book is now my favorite book. Ever. I think I need a good night's sleep before I can begin to describe it.Okay, now I think I’m ready for this.Everwild is the most phenomenal book I have ever read. Shusterman has successfully combined the most original plot, the highest level of writing, and the greatest characters into one terrific story. If your opinion of a book is easily swayed by others' opinions or reviews, I would stop reading this review right now. Pick up a copy of Everlost, the [...]

      You can tell that Neal Shusterman studied psychology in college. He does such a good job with his characters, diving into ethics and the morality of kids at different ages/stages. He doesn't write stereotypical, cliched or 2-D "bad" guys. He makes them human and often shows you how they went down the roads they do. He also dives into the "good" guys and shows us their mistakes too, making sure things are never black and white. He can turn a situation on a dime, surprising both his readers and I [...]

      Let me firstly say that I do not like how Nick has turned out since the end of “Everlost”. Secondly, I still firmly believe that Mary is a witch, and I really hope that instead of coming to Everlost once again she actually goes down the tunnel.Lastly, I was entirely far too angry that Zinnia is not part of Everlost anymore. In “Everlost” I grew very fond of Lief. In “Everwild” I grew very fond of Zinnia. Both times the characters have been put out. It’s beginning to get annoying.Be [...]

      This series is very inventive! I thought Everwild was even better than Everlost. Neil Shusterman has created a world that is full of wonder and disturbing events, sprinkled with just the right amount of humor. It's written in such a sweet, innocent way, that the disturbing things some of the characters do seem to creep up on you, and are all the more shocking because of it. I can’t wait to read the next book.

      Tämä trilogia vie minulta yöunet, kun en malta laskea näitä käsistäni. Everwild oli jopa vielä parempi kuin Everlost, vaikka oli huomattavasti synkempi. Edelleenkään kirjassa ei juuri ole väkivaltaa, vaikka pelottavan uhka on koko ajan läsnä ja juoni on kynsiäpureskeltavan jännittävä. Näissä kirjoissa kuvataan elämää kuoleman jälkeen, sitä kuinka jotkut kuolleet palaavat kukin tavallaan elävien joukkoon ja sitä, kuinka Everlostin lapset pärjäävät, kukin tavallaan, e [...]

      Everwild continues the story of young Nick (also known as the Chocolate Ogre) and Allie the Outcast, two children who died in a car accident but instead of passing over to the next life, they became trapped in an eerie in-between known only as Everlost. In Everlost, children's souls, called Afterlights, wander the world in search of purpose and leadership while watching the living world continue around them in a blur.Since Nick's defeat of Mary Hightower in Everlost, Mary has decided to strength [...]

      This novel was just as fascinating as the first. It's well written and has an intriguing world. We get answers about skinjackers and what they can do as well as why, we meet a ripper who can not only pull things from the living world but put them back. Nick still has the most development to me. Allie was a bit annoying in parts, but I really enjoyed her developing along the way. Mary is even more creepy than before and reading about her just fives me shivers.The ending of this left us with plent [...]

      He tardado más en leer este libro porque he tenido que hacer muchas cosas y no he tenido tiempo, además de acabar otro antes. Desde luego las páginas se me pasaban volando, el autor ha conseguido meterme otra vez en el mundo de Everlost y disfrutarlo. Los personajes antiguos y los nuevos me han seguido encantando. Quizás me han chirríado un poco la parte romántica, que ha sido un parte muy secundaria de la historia. Con un ritmo frenético este libro me ha gustado mucho, y me ha dejado con [...]

      A gripping, incredible sequel to Everlost and an extremely worthy middle novel that broadens the scope of Shusterman's afterlife world to epic proportions. The characters of the first book are scattered now, each group with its own mission. Mary Hightower has become the Sky Witch, scouring Everlost for the souls of children to "save." Nick, immortalized as the Chocolate Ogre, fights against the consuming memory of chocolate in order to oppose everything Mary stands for, hoping to save Afterlight [...]

      I loved it! I cannot tell you just how mind blowing the plot of Everwild is! Despite the obvious detail in the blurb, there were so many things that happened in this book that would literally have me gawping at the book. Everwild is written in the same style as Everlost, which I can only describe as sweet, so there is nothing graphic or too violent that actually happens in the book, which I think just makes these bombshells even more surprising!There were moments in this book when I was close to [...]

      This second book in the trilogy picks up a few months after the first ends and the action is much more fast paced this time around. There are several threads running through and various viewpoints, but the shifting focus works fine, isn't confusing or hard to know who's doing what.I liked how the characters continue to grow and change, some not so much for the better.This book starts making the reader think more about right and wrong and questioning if it is okay to do something wrong if your in [...]

      Truthfully, my rating of Everwild should hover somewhere between "It was OK" and "I Liked It." While it was a good read, for me, it really didn't live up to the previous installment of the Skinjacker series. We were certainly introduced to a whole slew of new characters, and we also learned a little something about some of our Everlost characters, which I enjoyed. However, this story just didn't seem to have the same heart as Everlost. I liked how Shusterman began the book with Mary's tips for n [...]

      I absolutely loved Everlost, the first book in this series. So when this one was merely ok, it was a big disappointment to me. I do want to say first of all that Shusterman's writing is still very good, just that this book didn't hit the right chords for me.There's an awful lot of story threads being juggled, for one. Which means that I would no sooner than get settled into a plot before the narrative would switch to another one. And I found myself significantly less attached to the characters t [...]

      Part 2 of a trilogy wife met the author at an English teacher's conference in Orlando, FLhe autographed her books. I enjoy books with unique perspectives and this one rates at the top with The Golden Compass trilogy. What makes it most appealing is that it delves into the human afterlife where there are those who wish to keep the souls who arrive there and those who set them free to enter the next phase of afterlifel of the characters are children with the potential to be Lolitas but Shusterman [...]

      Now, this is what I had been expecting from Everlost, the first book in the Skinjacker series. The characters all seemed more interesting and complex and there was a lot more depth to the story, with questions of life, death, whether the end justifies the means, etc. The plot just seemed better, too, answering enough questions to be satisfying, but leaving the reader hungering for the next book.

      I'm speechless because of the epilogue! This book was even better than the first one. It picks up a short time (3 years I think?) after the first book. This book was so hard to put down because of the interesting plot, well-written characters that makes me so happy, sad, angry, furious and the vivid description of the Everlost world. I can't wait to read the final book in the trilogy!

Si no te has animado a leer estos libros, ¡no dudes en hacerlo! Te llevarás una muy grata sorpresa, con un mundo maravillosamente escrito y completamente original.

      Neal Shusterman’s “Everwild” is both an amazing and interesting adaption to his previous book “Everlost”. Following the main characters (The ones left at least), Allie and Nick, we get to see just how each individual goes about their life in “Limbo” and continues on in their quest to find what's most important: answers. Now this quest brings them to undiscovered territory in Everlost, known as the everwilds, where each character parts ways in an unexpected journey that neither expe [...]

      Allie and Nick have been in Everlost for a few years. Like everything else that fails to get to where it’s going, they’ve settled in an unpredictable routine that’s become more like a mission. Their days are not consumed by tedious repetition or useless patterns Mary Queen of Snots would approve of. Allie and Nick have long-term goals. The dynamics differ for each, but in the end all Allie wants is to find her home; Nick wants to destroy Mary Hightower. Left to her own extreme ideas of wha [...]

      Everwild was a little slow at first, but towards that middle of the book it starts to pick up the pace. For me I definitely did not find it as good as Everlost, and I wished it was as good because I really liked the Climax of the story, but then it all just started to come crashing down. The overall plot of the book was really good, and I really liked how they had the Chocolate Ogre (Nick), and the Skywitch (Mary) as rivals going against each other. If you like more drama in the books you read, [...]

      On Reread - Not much to add to my original review below. I can't decided whether I am blessed or cursed with a terrible memory. I only read this a year and a half ago, and so much of the detail was gone that it was almost like reading it for the first time.In the first review, I didn't mention the climax at Graceland. There are certain places where Everlost and the living world merge, and Graceland is one of them. It has the effect of exaggerating the traits of those who come near to this "vorte [...]

      I love this series. I haven't been so excited to read a sequel since Harry Potter.While there's nothing necessarily mind-blowing about the writing itself, I can see how much Shusterman has improved from the first book. The POV was handled, in my opinion, seamlessly. At no time did I become conscious of the writing to the point that I was distracted from the plot. I was engrossed. Granted, I really wanted to read this book. So was I predisposed to overlook any possible flaws? Absolutely. Still, I [...]

      4.5 Stars Everlost is the place where sticks and stones won’t break your bones but names can always hurt you. It is also where things that were once loved and are destroyed in the real world might find themselves almost like an echo.“Great tragedies have great consequences. They ripple through the fabric of this world and the next. When the loss is too great for either world to bear, Everlost absorbs the shock, like a cushion between the two.”I enjoyed Everlost but Everwild drew me into th [...]

      I am in awe, once again, of Shusterman's effortless writing and endless stream of imagination. Where does he get his ideas? It's hard not to be biased, seeing how he's one of my favourite YA fiction authors, but here he's proven himself again with Everwild, the second of the Skinjacker Trilogy. I began this book apprehensive - because its hard to find sequels that match the prowess of the first, and also because I stumbled across some negative reviews about it - but Everwild is for lack of a bet [...]
